Published Mar 03, 2015Eternal Summers have been going strong since 2009, and the Virginia indie pop-rock trio are carrying on in 2015 by releasing their fourth full-length. Gold and Stone is due out on June 2 through Kanine Records.
Like last year's The Drop Beneath, this album was recorded at Austin's Resonate Studio with mixer/engineer Louie Lino. It apparently goes beyond the band's usual poppy rock sound.
"On this self-produced album, we wanted to target more lush and radiant textures, some classic rock riffs, some jazzier elements and some full-on punk snarl," singer Nicole Yun said in a statement.
Regarding the album's inscription, she added, "We were listening to a lot of Blur, early Radiohead, And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, Echo and the Bunnymen, Ryan Adams, Lush, Dinosaur Jr., Cleaners from Venus and Stereolab in the van on tour before writing Gold and Stone."
